What our members say

"After attending networking events over the last 20 years, I just wanted to say you are undoubtedly one of the best networking hosts I?ve met. Keep up the good work. Genuinely - The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is one big happy family."

Nasir Kothia, eBusiness UK Ltd

Central and East Lancashire Business Network Member

"As a Humber based business it?s important for Delaney Marling Partnership Ltd to network with likeminded business people to extend our network and build up our brand awareness. With this in Mind we joined the South Humber Business Network in 2010 (I think) and gave it 12 months to see if it was for us. We have been members ever since. The group has allowed us to fulfil our initial goal as our network has grown and people have started to recognise our brand. More importantly the we have now picked up new suppliers and clients who we use and rely on and pass their details on to others in our network as trusted connections. The meetings are a place where we can network in a comfortable business like environment with great business people from a diverse range of local/national business?s."

"The Business Network South Manchester has undoubtedly facilitated steady growth in my business during the last year whilst increasing the number of invaluable contacts within my networking circle and I'm confident this will continue through into 2012. Your meetings are always well structured, productive and uplifting - what more could you ask of networking? I would not hesitate to recommend The Business Network South Manchester to all my associates and wish you continued, and much deserved, success in the coming year."

"It is personal touches like this which set the Network aside from other business networks and which make it a constant pleasure to attend."

"Joining The Business Network was one of the best moves I ever made. Through The Business Network, I have found a number of trusted suppliers and some very good customers. Not only that but the complimentary morning seminars are a valuable source of information on business trends and ideas."

Ian Smith, Winning Tenders Ltd

Exeter Business Network Member

"Joining the Business Network South Herts has been a revelation to me as my previous experiences of other Networking Groups was a real turn off. The Business Network format has a working lunch feel to it that allows even the least experienced networker to shine . . . and enjoy"

"If you've been going to networking events as long as I have you will have done them all. Ones where it's just you and a woman who does aromatherapy for cats and that one where half an hour in you start to wonder if you've accidentally joined some sort of cult. You know the one where people are deliberately breaking their own toilets just so they have got a referral to give to the plumber. Anyway 10 years ago we went to our first Business Network and we haven't bothered with anything else since. Above all its enjoyable and you meet great people. Out of that business relationships and even friendships grow. The culture is very much' how can I help' rather than 'what's in it for me'. So all the right ingredients are in place for you to grow your network of contacts and grow your business. And it works."

Ted Flanagan, Gosschalks Solicitors

London Central Business Network Member

"I?ve come across plenty of business networks in my years running professional football clubs and in consultancy; most are good, but this one is exceptional. The level of professional organisation and engagement of The Business Network makes me want to contribute my own experience and contacts. In turn, I expect to learn what's going on in the region and pick up new ways of doing things - supporting each other in this way benefits everyone."

Barrie Pierpoint, BP Management & Marketing Services

Peterborough Business Network Member

"What I would say? Do it! You do have to work it.. not just lunch once a month but 1 to 1's, being open to opportunities, and a givers mindset. If you want to grow your business - simply do it!"
